Pack Place Education, Arts & Science Center

Pack Place Education, Arts & Science Center Review

This 92,000-square-foot complex in downtown Asheville houses the Asheville Art Museum, Colburn Earth Science Museum, and Diana Wortham Theatre. The YMI Cultural Center (also a part of Pack Place), which focuses on the history of African-Americans in North Carolina is just south of Place Place at 39 South Market St. The Asheville Art Museum stages major exhibits several times a year, with some highlighting regional artists. The Colburn Earth Science Museum displays local gems and minerals. The intimate 500-seat Diana Wortham Theatre hosts musical concerts and dance and theater performances year-round.
